Welcome to siliconsara.com! This domain is the hub of siliconsara’s cyberspace foot prints.
This is the third (possibly fourth) reincarnation of siliconsara.com as a landing page (blog/journal now at Dreamwidth Studios). However, my web antics go way back, to around 2003 (and maybe even earlier, difficult to remember).
I started out as a web collective, hosting various shrines and other novelty sites under the gracious hosting of others, such as supernothing.org and free hosting sites (too many to mention). After that I added a blog in there somewhere, but it wasn’t the forefront. I started out with Greymatter and worked my way up through Livejournal and WordPress. I had also gone through a few domains, namely kthxbai.org and okidoki.ws, finally settling on siliconsara.com in 2005.
The name itself was created after wanting a moniker that sounded like a cross between a kitschy nickname and a porn name; it had to reflect my love for computers and the internet. I choose ‘silicon’ for a few reasons, that being it alliterates with my RL name and that silicon is the choice element for creating our precious PC’s and electronics. It’s also eventually going to be a retro name for the start of the internet age as silicon will go out of style for quantum computing, so it reflects the age where I first started getting into this whole internets thing. It’s also a test: for those who go “lol, boob jobs and sex toys!” when hearing the name are people who are best to avoid. That’s siliconE, sillykins. :D
Siliconsara.com has either been a blog or a landing page for my various social profiles. I’m aiming to be a better blogger and artist, so it’s now an art blog with writing thrown in on various subjects, including some dailies.
About The Sara
It’s difficult to talk about myself, but I’ll give it my best shot. I can say that my star sign is Pisces and I have an INFJ personality. Mash those two together and you have a really day-dreamy, private and very weird person.
Right now I’m mostly known for my love of Predators, which is still going strong after 5 years of discovering it all. I’m the current owner of The Predaphiles Network, a community for alt Predator fans. It’s got its love and hate over its existence since it began but I wouldn’t trade it for the world with all the positive feedback I’ve gotten from it. I also moderate The AVP Subtext deviantART group.
I am an avid knitter and sometimes crocheter. I have baskets upon baskets of yarn; most of it there for the Warm Up America project with about 25% left for my own pursuits. I hate making a gauge swatch, throwing caution to the wind when following someone else’s pattern. My favorite fiber blends are superwash wool and nylon as well as wool and acrylic. I love cotton too. I like to be able to throw my knitted objects into the washing machine without it felting all over the place. I do not like to hand wash, arrgh! I feel as though it’s not clean enough.
I love to collect things and if there’s a series of something I have to collect the whole set to feel secure. I collect everything from bookmarks, books, yarn, tea sets, incense, handbags, notebooks, piggy banks, ect…
I am a wannabe artist and am on and off in college for a degree in Fine Art. Part of this blog is to show my progress as I turn from a newbie to a professional.
I’ve been told that I write very well when I get into the mood of it. I use this skill to roleplay in text-based environments. It’s my way of writing fan-fiction.
I am intermediate/advanced in tarot card reading. I’m not pagan or a witch/wiccan, just interested in tarot philosophy and esoteric symbolism. Now and then I will advertise free readings as practice on certain RP channels with good results. If I get a crowd of readers, I might advert here as well.
I’m a major introvert and tend to keep to myself but not adverse to making new friends. Or I wouldn’t be footprinting around the internet in the first place!
I own a kitty, a calico named “Annie”. She’s very clingy but I wouldn’t have her any other way. She’s very vocal as well, sometimes to my chagrin; I still love her to bits.
That’s all I can think of. You’re welcome to ask questions as things go along (use my formspring).
Have a question or comment you’d like to tell me privately? Then this form is for you.
